Wall Street Journal: U.S. Imposes New Tariffs, Ramping Up 'America First' Trade Policy — "President Donald Trump slapped steep tariffs on imports of solar panels and washing machines, kicking off his second year in office by showing he is ready to start implementing his long-promised “America First” trade policy."
President Trump has a big sales pitch for the global leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week: “America First”, a path to economic success. He set the stage this week with tariffs on imported washing machines, solar energy cells and solar panels. And there’s talk of more to come. China’s blasting the policy, hinting at retaliation. The world’s cutting international trade deals without the US. This hour, On Point: tariffs, trade, and Trump. --Jane Clayson
